Surfing in West Cork
Surfing in West cork has become very popular, with the wide beaches of Garrettstown just a 10 minute drive from Kinsale. The surfers call this G’town and regularly get good swell in the bay… We have had very enthusiastic reports of fun filled days in G’town during the summer months and into the winter too for the more hardy surfers! Families tend to travel out for the morning or afternoon for the surfing and then return to their Kinsale base for their nights entertainment. One Mother of three teenagers last year told us she had the most wonderful week, she relaxed and went for her spa treatment or just simply went for a coffee in peace as the kids enjoyed their surfing every day, they arrived home tired and happy every night… perfect!
